I Thought So!

March 17th, 2009

Recently I’ve become convinced that they’re ‘us’ and we’re ‘them’

Paraphrased from E Haig.

  1. Why do we build barriers – religious, political, national?
    Why do we fear differences – sexual, social, racial?
    Why do we use terminology – that draws a line round ‘us’?
    Why do we use concepts – that keep out ‘them’?
    Why do we look out there – and see what we hate?
    Why do we project – our inner fears out?
    Why can’t we, just occasionally, drop the illusion of difference
    and remember that there is no ‘us’ nor ‘them’ – only ‘we’.

    They are truly us, and we are truly them, and if we remembered that more often, the world could rest again.

  2. “There ain’t no good guy, there ain’t no bad guy – there’s only you and me and we just disagree”.

  3. The basis for all my teaching, rituals and most of my writing here in the States. We mirror each other so we can see better–especially the warts.
